    My condolences to the family. Mona and I worked together for quite a few years in the count room at Overlake Christian Church. She was so faithful to come in every Monday morning for so many years and we so appreciated all her help. We still miss her as she had to stop helping us a few years ago when Jack needed her help. She was a lovely lady and I am so sad to have her leave this world but she is with Jesus and how can you beat that! Vikki
